Face it, things just keep on getting more and more expensive, and with the way the economy is right now it's really hard to be able to buy your kids exactly what they want! I just bought a TV for myself and luckily I bought it for a cool $1000 plus free shipping and handling so it really wasn't that bad! One of the cool things about shopping online is if you look around a bit you can usually find really great prices. For example, I shopped online for my TV and got it for $1000 but when I looked in stores like Sears it was around $1800 for a used one and almost $2500 for a brand new one! Not only can you find really good prices online but it's incredibly convenient and the last thing you need right now is to be wasting gas on driving up to the mall when you could just as easily buy it online! Take the easy way out this Christmas! No lines, no waiting, no snow. Quick, easy and painless! Check out the following TVs!

Sony Bravia XBR KDL-55XBR8 55-Inch 1080p 120Hz Triluminos LED LCD HDTV -
The XBR 8-Series is pinnacle of Sony's expertise in HDTV technology. The TRILUMINOS three-color LED backlight combined with ACE PRO technology and Sony's best fully digital video processor BRAVIA Engine 2 PRO produces breathtaking picture quality that simply cannot be described in words. I have actually seen these particular TVs at BestBuy and the picture quality is absolutely stunning. If you can actually watch this TV and not drool a little bit then you seriously have something wrong with you! I watched a few minutes of one of the football games on it and it's just so realistic it's sick! So, even if this thing was $5k I would still buy it!
It really is amazing how far TVs have come. When my mom was younger they couldn't even get more than 3 channels and now we have state of the art TVs with LCD panels and HDTV technology. At this point, if I didn't have a big screen TV I don't know what I would do. The TV I bought was actually a Samsung and it really is one of the better brands of TVs as far as price, quality and functionality. Also, if you are really into video games you will absolutely adore these TVs! Its like the real thing, add some surround sound and you are really good to go! These newer TVs also have the HDMI jacks and all of the other jacks located (usually) on the side of the TV so its discreet but reachable. The HDMI jack allows you to hook your laptop right up to the TV so if you have the PC to TV option or you find something online that you want to watch on your big screen you can!
